If you live in snow country and have ever left your house in winter, this has probably happened to you.
It’s winter. It’s slushy and slippery and there’s salt everywhere: On the street, on the sidewalk, on your door mat, and on your boots.
I’m talking about that crusty, white halo around the base of your boots and shoes.
It’s best to wipe your boots or shoes off as soon as you can to remove most of the salt right away.
Letting salt stay on your leather may lead to permanent discoloration and scarring.
Clean any remaining salt off as soon as you notice that telltale white halo. It’s pretty simple.
All you need to clean the salt off of your leather boots and shoes is:
The cleaning process is just five easy steps:
Do make sure to get the entire exterior of the boot/shoe wet so that you don’t end up with water marks once your boots/shoes are dry.
Don’t hold your boot/shoe under the running water or dunk it in the sink.
Repeat with your other boot or shoe. See also Make Your Boots Last Forever
Once your boots/shoes are clean and dry apply a coat of MooBuzz® All-Natural Leather Protection to replenish moisture, restore suppleness, and protect against water and salt.
